What if Rangers win?

Yeah, oddschecker has it at 97% which I think means if you're quick you can make a 'guaranteed' profit. But you have to know what you're doing and put quite a lot of money down to make it worthwhile.

95.67% it was . 17/5 draw has gone now so a bit higher.

£10k stake would have made you just under £500 for nothing. The big rollers will have been into this im sure

So have I got this right in a round about way?

Say I spend £17.50 and spread it like this:

£3.25 @ 19/4 = £18.68
£4.25 @ 17/5 = £18.70
£10.00 @ 4/5 = £18.00

I’m guaranteed at least to make £0.50 profit

I think so.

I think so.

Cool so i sign up to both sites and deposit £25 in each account costing me £50. I think they are both matching your first bet with a free bet when you register. So im thinking:

(*Free Bet)

BetVic:

£25 Rangers @ 4/6 = £41.67
*£25 Inverness @ 17/4 = £106 (£131-25)

BlueSquare:

£25 Rangers @ 4/5 = £45
*£25 Draw @ 11/4 = £68 (93-25)

So Rangers Win im up £36
Inverness win im up £56
A Draw im up £18

Any flaws in this???

Even an arb would not make me open an account with Victor,they would soon close it.

I don't think so. But you'll need to move quickly to get take advantage of the Arb opportunity. And as Andy suggested, bookmakers don't like people 'arbing' so they might quickly close or limit your account.

the prices i used went about an hour after. BetVictor arent best price on any of the outcomes anymore

there was a moment at 97% when three different bookies could be used

well true

bookies refusing to take bets is getting a joke now , though this would be an obvious one

Like to see anyone get 10K on a football match without getting knocked back, especially arbing, £10 maybe.

There was a thread a while ago that involved Arsenal I believe, I think it was on a money saving expert thread and involved betfair, but no one understood what they were doing and instead of making £20 or £30 each they ended up losing £1000's each IIRC.

Bookmakers are a joke, if the odds are there and they are offering them, they shouldn't be able to refuse or close down accounts.

Sooner loopholes like this and the whole Gibraltar issue get sorted the better, especially for horse racing.

it would be spread around but yeh you are 100% right

youd get a few hundred on id imagine. the perecentages here woudlnt make it worthwhile

there are bookies that WILL take your big bets. usually they are not your high street players

try fitzdares or SBObet

agree to a certain extent. they should be able to qoute a maximum but it should be a fair amount, ive been refused as little as £30 before when trying to get on. thats just stupid

saul1664

Yeah, but as soon as you get your amount on with one the prices will automatically have changed with all the others.

Think that was a league cup game when prices were up for first goal scorer before the teams were announced,when the punters thought they had beaten the system they were like rampant lions.

When it started to look like it was going tits up they started wetting themselves.

Things like that tend to happen when people get greedy. I've done it myself a few times.

Apologies, I didn't look at the prices and maths. I wrongly asumed you were using the prices quoted earlier.
